Memo

BILL NUMBER:S6152B

TITLE OF BILL: An act to authorize the village of Mamaroneck, in the county of Westchester, to offer certain retirement options to police officers Scott Fraioli and Dominick Lanza

PURPOSE: The purpose of this bill would authorize the Village of Mamaroneck, in the county of Westchester, to offer certain retirement options to certain police officers employed by the village.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill would authorize the Village of Mamaroneck, to correct a pension system matter on behalf of town police officers, Scott Fraioli arid Dominick Lanza. Both individuals were enrolled in the 375 (i) program when they should have been enrolled in the 384 (i) retirement program.

JUSTIFICATION: Both Scott Fraioli and Dominick Lanza were enrolled in the 375 (i) program when they should have been enrolled in the 384 (i) retirement program for reasons not ascribable to their own negligence and thus failed to make a timely application to participate in such optional retirement plan. The village of Mamaroneck may so elect by filing with the state comptroller, on or before December 31, 2010, a resolution of its legislative body together with certification that any such police officer did not bar himself or herself from participation in such retirement plan as a result of his or her own negligence. Thereafter, any such police officer may elect to be covered by the provisions of section 384-d of the retirement and social security law, and shall be entitled to the full rights and benefits associated with coverage under such section, by filling a request to that effect with the state comptroller on or before December 31, 2011.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: An increase of approximately $9,900 in the annual contributions of the Village of Mamaroneck for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011 and past service cost of approximately $188,000 to the Village of Mamaroneck as a one-time payment. This estimate is based on the assumption that payment will be made on February 1, 2011.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.

Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the village of Mamaroneck, in the county of Westchester, a participating employer in the New York state and local police and fire retirement system, which previously elected to offer the optional retirement plan established pursuant to section 384-d of the retirement and social secu- rity law to police officers employed by such village, is hereby author- ized to make participation in such plan available to Scott Fraioli and Dominick Lanza, police officers employed by the village of Mamaroneck, who, on the effective date of this act are covered under the provisions of section 375-i of the retirement and social security law, and who, for reasons not ascribable to their own negligence failed to make a timely application to participate in such optional retirement plan. The village of Mamaroneck may so elect by filing with the state comptroller, on or before December 31, 2010, a resolution of its legislative body together with certification that any such police officers did not bar themselves from participation in such retirement plan as a result of their own negligence.

FISCAL NOTE.--Pursuant to Legislative Law, Section 50: This bill will allow the Village of Mamaroneck to elect to reopen the provisions of Section 384-d of the Retirement and Social Security Law for all Police Officers currently employed by the Village. If this bill is enacted and the two eligible officers become covered under Section 384-d, we anticipate that there will be an increase of approximately $9,900 in the annual contributions of the Village of Mamaroneck for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2011. In addition to the annual contributions discussed above, there will be an immediate past service cost of approximately $165,000 which would be borne by the Village of Mamaroneck as a one-time payment.

This estimate, dated January 11, 2010 and intended for use only during the 2010 Legislative Session, is Fiscal Note No. 2010-57, prepared by the Actuary for the New York State and Local Police and Fire Retirement System.
